Declare His glory among the nations,
His marvelous deeds among all peoples.
Jesus comfort us and encourages us.
John 10 Jesus identifies Himself as the Good Shepherd
John 10:16 Jesus said, “I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.”
Five Fundamentals of Mission
John 10:16 " I have other sheep......"
I. The Basis of mission.
Acts 18…..Paul’s evangelistic ministry at Corinth
vv. 9-10 In Corinth, Jesus said to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.”
John 10:16 "“...those other sheep that are not of this sheep pen…”
II. The Scope of Missions
There are 6900 unreached groups with 2.5 billion people!
Pastor illustrated mission withe the story :
1. Old Testament : Story of Jonah
2. New Testament : Cornelius story
What hold back mission today?
Like Jonah : Prejudices? Indifference?
Like Peter : Near-sightedness? Ethnocentric?
Pre-occupation with Self?
John 10:16 “.....I must bring them also……….”
III. The Motivation of Missions
Missions is a “must” with Jesus
2 Peter 3:9
1 Tim 2:4
We are not just saved from sin and hell, but we are saved to serve the purposes of God.
John 10:16 “…..They too will listen to my voice….”
IV. The Success of Missions
Rom 10:13 “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?
And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
And how can they preach unless they are sent?
“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Rom 10:17 “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”
John 10:16 “…..and there shall be one flock and one Shepherd.”
V. The Goal of Missions
Rev 7:9 “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb”
